Description

Continuing on with Seahorse week I would like to introduce the Kelloggi Seahorse (Hippocampus Kelloggi), or also known as the Great Seahorse, not sure what is so great about it compared to other Seahorses but it’s still pretty cool.

If you want to identify a Kelloggi, look for a backwards curved spine cheek, the spine on the cheek will curve back toward the body, in this image you can see it to the right of the eye and slightly down.

One of the things I liked about this photo was the outline or weird halo the Seahorse has around his head and body. This is caused by a thin layer of algae build-up which resemble very fine hairs all over his body, the hairs are of equal length which coupled with the dive lights make it look like someone copy & pasted this little guy right onto the background.

Trust me, it’s a legitimate shot and no copy pasting done here, just an odd lighting quirk caused by the hairs/algae on this Kelloggi Seahorse.

So that means now on Kata Beach we have found all of the following types of Seahorses listed below, click for an image of them.

Ambon Scorpion Fish – Not Just A Seasonal Fluke

Last season at Kata Beach (Nov 2017 - May 2018) I posted some fairly interesting finds, one of which was, of course, the Ambon Scorpion Fish, something that is not meant to be in the waters around Phuket and something as far as I know, had not been found by anyone else here (bragging). We did qui [...]

A favorite among photographers when talking about Frog Fish is this guy, commonly referred to as the Clown Frog Fish. Many mistake Clown Frog Fish for a different species but are part of the larger family of Warty Frog Fish, grouped under the 'Antennarius maculatus' classification. They tend to b [...]

Leafy Scorpion Fish – Ghostly White

For me one of the hardest of all the scorpion fish's to find is this one, the Leaf or Leafy Scorpion. Why is it so hard to find, when other species like bearded and devils literally turn up everywhere, good question, I don't know the answer, just that their rarity makes them a very exciting opportun [...]

Hairy Leg Hermit Crab

It may not be the most fascinating critter in the ocean, it certainly is not rare, but the night I found it crawling around on bright yellow polyps I had to stop and see if I could make this remarkably unremarkable crab a little more interesting. It was a relatively simple shot, it was a night di [...]
